Flip Satchel - Flip’s radio career started in Little Rock back it 2004. He got his first job buy walking around in public while wearing a speedo, receiving an indecent exposure ticket by local law enforcement. He would later be named best dressed in the state by the Arkansas Times in their year in review edition. Naturally, this impressed local radio stations and he was hired on as a monkey boy, pulling stunts and publicity ploys like nobody’s business. The idea from the start: Push the envelope as far as possible and make it entertaining. He was good at his job, so good in fact  he and the rest of the morning show was fired after going too far with one the stunts.

From there young Stachel began to make up fake radio shows and websites to get credentialed for sporting events, concerts and events across the country. Eventually his journeys led him to a writing gig with fightnews.com. From there Satchel’s fight coverage eventually led him to the Tampa Bay area for Roy Jones Jr./Antonio Tarver III. Young Satchel enjoyed the area so much he decided to make the Tampa Bay area his home.
